On the Last Word On Spurs’ latest YouTube video, Lyall Thomas from Sky Sports has been discussing all things Tottenham Hotspur.

Speaking alongside host Ricky Sacks, the pair discussed the situation developing at the north London club concerning the future of Tanguy Ndombele.

Would you be sad to see Ndombele leave?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With the Frenchman believed to be wanting a move away this summer, he has not featured in any of Nuno Espirito Santo’s matchday squads in the opening two Premier League games.

Tottenham’s record signing has been training with the first team at Hotspur Way, but is still believed to be hoping for a move to one of the world’s footballing powerhouses.

Discussing the likelihood of the 24-year-old getting his desired summer exit from the north London club, Thomas had the following to say on Ndombele’s situation.

“I can see that happening. I think of all the players that Spurs are open to moving on, he’s probably the most likely to leave, at this point, simply because of the amount of interest there is actually out there in him.

“And for exactly the reason that you just said, that he is a tremendously talented player, [he] really has the potential to be a top player in his position. He’s almost unplayable at times.

“And I think it’s a real shame that he hasn’t been able to show that on a consistent basis for Tottenham and really become the player that he wants to be.”

TIF Thoughts on Ndombele…

There will be a lot of Spurs fans left frustrated by their 24-year-old midfielder, who has failed to live up to his hefty price tag, he has struggled to even secure himself a spot in the starting XI throughout his time at Spurs (via Transfermarkt).

The Frenchman has shown moments of brilliance since signing, however, we feel that is all it has been – moments.

Undoubtedly, Ndombele has had his issues in adapting to the way of life in England, which was helped by Serge and Moussa Sissoko, but it seems his mind is firmly set on leaving this summer.

Luckily for Spurs, Ndombele still has four years remaining on his current deal so they could still realistically ask for a big transfer fee.
